The Democratic Club of Longboat Key has elected a new president to its board.
Lucie Lapovsky was chosen to take the place of Arlene Skversky, who was elected to the role in January but stepped down to dedicate herself to precinct captain responsibilities.
Lapovsky has served as the club’s program committee chair for the past three years. She has experience as an economist, who consults, writes and speaks widely on higher education finance and governance issues.
“I urge you to appreciate the opportunity we have as Democrats to turn Florida blue in the near future,” she said in her introductory letter. “I’m feeling positive in a way I haven’t experienced in a long time and I hope you are, too.”
